£54.99

Released: 8th December 2023. Released in 1998, Up is the eleventh studio album from R.E.M. In the UK ‘UP’ is platinum certified and charted at #2 on release. The album, featuring the singles "Daysleeper,” “Lotus,” “Suspicion” and “At My Most Beautiful,” draws inspiration from electronic music, using a wide range of tools to create a dreamy pop landscape that is reflective and moody. It was the band's first album without drummer Bill Berry, who retired from the group in October of 1997. This deluxe reissue celebrates the album’s 25th anniversary.    “All these years later, it still has resonance... Up will always remain a strikingly gorgeous [album]” - Stereogum   Disc 1: Original album remastered  Disc 2: A complete previously unreleased 11-song (12-track) live set from the band’s appearance from R.E.M.’s ’99 taping for hit TV series Party of Five    The LIVE set represents one of the first times R.E.M. performed songs from Up, so it’s positioned as an intimate “rehearsal” to the in-studio crowd. The set includes the hits + Up tracks.   Fans are aware that the performance happened, but unaware that this audio capture exists (no bootlegs currently online for this bonus material)   Disc 3: Blu Ray features:  5.1 and HD audio for ‘UP’  The original EPK  ‘Uptake Performance’ features a collection of songs performed by R.E.M. at Ealing Studios, London 1998 (Tracks: Daysleeper, Lotus, Suspicion, At My Most Beautiful, Parakeet and Sad Professor)  Newly upgraded HD music videos for – Daysleeper, Lotus and At My Most Beautiful.   Deluxe package includes expansive liner notes by journalist Josh Modell, including new interviews with the band.
